In 2001, the people of Milk Hill, a remote area in Wiltshire, England, were confronted with this question when mysterious circles appeared overnight in the ﬁelds of their small hamlet. As any parent with a kiddie pool understands, impressions left in the grass are not necessarily unique or bafﬂing, but these formations were different. The 780-foot design, composed of 409 circles, formed three interlocking spirals. It was a sight to see, for sure. Crop circles like this one weren’t a new occurrence; they had been appearing all over the world for decades, with no cogent explanation. Unlike other supernatural phenomena, like Bigfoot or psychic powers, the existence of crop circles is easily veriﬁed. They are indeed real, but their source has been suggested to be ﬂying saucers, hedgehogs, weather patterns, and even time travel.
However, these explanations proved less than acceptable when it was revealed that two brothers had been making the circles for decades as an elaborate prank. They were inspired by UFO sightings in the 1960s and decided to make it appear that one had landed. This hoax went on for years and even inspired copycats to make circles of their own. The source of these puzzling and strange imprints ﬁnally had an explanation—it was all a man-made ruse.
